Our Refugee Support Coordinator, Mr. Amaf Yousef, participated in a National Refugee Welcome Board meeting on 9 June 2016. Activists from all over the country gathered to discuss best practice and experiences in supporting refugees and asylum seekers. The meeting was also attended by representatives of civil society, Home Office, and local refugee support groups.
We had a very warm and productive meeting with Mary Robinson MP on 3 June in her office in Cheadle. We discussed various issues pertaining to Syria, including humanitarian aid drops on besieged areas, protection of civilians (and highlighting that Assad is the root cause of the problem), as well as bank account issues for Syrian residents and charities in the UK.
